. this is the task that susan b. anthony gives us to continue today. like anthony we too must challenge the status quo for the sake of women and their children. women deserve better than abortion. thank you and i will yield back my time. mrs. schmidt: thank you to the gentlelady from north carolina for so eloquently pointing out some of the dangers of abortion, both physical and emotional. and i don't think the chapter, mr. speaker, has been written on the dangers of abortion. but i do wonder the lives that we've missed and the fabric and how it has been compromised the fabric of america, the fabric of the world because an innocent life didn't get to be woven into it. you know, when we're born our parents don't know what we're going to become. they just hope that we're happy and they hope that we're healthy. i mean, you look at our president. you think when he was born his mom thought he was going to be the president of the united states? i seriously doubt it. he didn't come from a dynasty of presidents. he's just an ordinary person born from an ordinary mom, but he, you knee, had the opportunity
senator jerry moran, senate of appropriations, joins us now. senator, welcome to the "glenn beck program." nice to meet you, sir. >> good to be back with you. thank you for the opportunity. >> judge napolitano: what is the latest, senator. it gather that the vote has been put off again, that there is a republican measure on the floor, democratic measure on the floor and the senate is not going to vote on it now until tomorrow. is that the case? >> the expectation was there may have been a vote this everything. it now appears it's carried over until tuesday morning. the expectation is that there will be two proposals, one what you call the paltry $61 billion preduction. hr-1, sent to us in the senate by the house of representatives. >> judge napolitano: great. >> then the even more paltry $6 billion cut suggested by president obama and democrat leaders in the senate. and there will be a vote on each one of those. my guess is that neither one of them will receive the 60 votes necessary to move forward. and then we're once again back to negotiations with i suppose democrat leaders. and perh
're not that much closer to a deal. >> gregg: to be fair, republicans are using some tricky math. they claim the total of proposed spending cuts is $102 billion but actually based on this year's budget, it's really $61 billion. both sides are guilty of mathematical deception but there will be a vote to us, harry reid announced it on both the proposals but they are not going to pass, are they? >> it looks like both will fail. i think that is what has to happen so the senate leaders can get their members to the table, they can say look, we have to negotiate. so there has to be a compromise. i think they actually have to go through those motions to convince members, hey, a deal has to happen. >> which brings plea to my next question. in the senate with new numbers, they do have enough votes to block any attempt to change the house bill. doesn't that mean that in reality the only way to fund the government is through house republicans? >> well, i don't know about that. i think everybody has a role to play here. democrats control the senate. they don't have 60 votes but they are in charge and pre
an honest discussion about how are we going to reform a process that's gotten us into this fix? gotten us to the point where we're running a debt of 10% of g.d.p., where our total debt is screaming towards totally unsustainable levels. i can tell you the folks in pennsylvania know very we will that you cannot continue living beyond your moneys, as this government has done. i see this as a very constructive and important opportunity to begin to have there discussion about how we're going to get this process under croavment i appreciate the help from senator vitter and i will yield back my time to him. mr. vitter: i thank my distinguished colleague and again this amendment, as modified, simply says that if we were ever to reach the statutory debt limit for the federal government, then revenue coming in would go first to service two things -- social security checks and interest on the federal debt. so that would not put -- be put in jeopardy for months down the line. and the purpose of this amendment is to try to take, quite frankly, again, madam president, some of the scare tactics and some

"the afghan war is not worth fighting, most in the u.s. say." host: what do you think? is the war in afghanistan worth fighting? do you think it has been productive so far? if you think this time for a pullout? fairfax, virginia. jack joins us. good morning. caller: good morning. i had a comment about the war and one other comment. i do not think it is worth fighting. we're spending $2 billion per week and countless companies are just taking this money. it cannot be accounted for. that is why i think the republicans are all four wards because the money goes overseas and it cannot be accounted for. if it stays in the country under social programs, at least there's some accountability. my other point, you know, these guys like eric cantor and paul ryan and boehner -- they are all under federal employees health benefits. they pay $430 per month. the very

"the chicago tribune" tells us american officials expect the united states would do the heavy lifting in a campaign that may includ
senator mike lee will be joining us in a couple of moments. the federal government charges 18 cents a gallon in tax at the pump. nothing to do with getting the oil to you. should we pay that and should the government reduce that tax when oil is spiking 33% in two weeks? >> most of the push i hear, people all wanting to raise the tax we're lucky if we keep the tax where it is, probably what we need to do is have a government friendly to business. we all need electricity. we all need gasoline for our cars. but we have a government right now that i think is the most antibusiness government or administration that we've had in my lifetime >> yet, the president appoints someone like bill daley, the brother of the soon to be exgovernor of chicago and former senior vice president, jp morgan chase to put on the front of being in favor of business. the president went along with keeping the bush era tax rates where they were in the lame duck era of congress. claiming that he is in favor of this. his words don't always match up with what he is doing. >> he claims he wants to do something about
evening. i'm bret baier. pentagon officials say so far the u.s. spent $580 million on the libyan conflict. while we're committed to the operation financially, militarily and diplomatically, questions remain about what it will mean to deem the mission a success. james rosen is at the state department. good evening. >> reporter: good evening. president obama and top commanderrers pushed forward on the parallel and separate path to strip muammar gaddafi of his ability to wage war and pressuring him to resign. today a top nato commander said the missions may connect over time in london, secretary of state hillary clinton met with colleagues from the united nations, europe and arab league to sketch out end game in libya. clinton said arming the libyan rebels were not discussed and only vaguely did she address growing speculation that gaddafi will receive asylum. >> we believe he must go. we're working with the international community to try to achieve that outcome. and look for political resolution which could include leaving the country. >> bret: we are not engaged and look for him to go does
you very much for joining us tonight. >> oh, thanks so much for having me. >> you can have the last word online at our blog, thelastword.msnbc.com and you can follow my tweets at lawrence. the rachel maddow show is up next. good evening, rachel. >> good evening, lawrence. thank you. and thanks to you at home for staying with us this hour. there is breaking news tonight out of washington, dc, as the reuters news agency reports, from what they say are four separate government sources that president obama has authorized covert operations inside libya to help the rebels there. quoting reuters -- indeed the "new york times" then reports tonight that -- now does this mean that the cia is in libya as a pseudo-military force to topple gaddafi the way the cia participated as a pseudo-military force in toppling the taliban and afghanistan back in 2001? "t tesgo o oitwa i rorngonhto y no. first in afghanistan, the cia worked with u.s. military forces on the ground in afghanistan. in libya, the u.s. is still ruling out ground troops. so far in libya, the u.s. is not saying we are doing that. th
that will include a discussion of when the u.s. will hand over its lead role. french military officials say french pilot fired a missile at a libyan plane that just landed at a base in the coastal city of misrata. french jets, including some from the aircraft carrier charles de gaulle, seen here off libya, struck a libyan base 150 miles south of the coast. attacks in tripoli targeted a libyan military base depot. libyan state tv broadcast these images of the damage. and the african-american union has invited representatives from gadhafi's government and opposition representatives to talk in ethiopia's capital tomorrow. so far new york response from either side in libya. >>> we begin coverage with nbc news pentagon correspondent, jim miklaszewski. mik, what can you tell us about the incident involving that french fighter jet? >> reporter: u.s. military officials can't tell us very much. earlier today, members of that coalition on the american side said they had no evidence that there was a plane in the air or of any poe sentential shoot-dow. as we find out from the french, one of their war fighting
flooding back to us if we'd simply lower the taxes and you heard president obama said say that in the state of the union message, that we now have one of the two highest corporate tax rates in the world. a couple of days after his speech, japan actually lowered that tax rate and leaving us at the top level. and so the president recognizes that we make ourselves uncompetitive with our tax rate and we should do something about it. he's exactly right. we should cut taxes. and yet when you bring that up on the floor of the house, you have one half of the body that grabs their chest and falls backward, pulling the flag across their face and saying, we can't do that because old glory might just wither away and the other side says, it's the only way to economic growth. if we're going to fix this imbalance of spending and revenue, we absolutely have to have growth and job creation should be the primary focus of this congress. but unless we focus on the taxes and on the regulation we cannot cure the job problem in the country. a few years ago ireland was looking at itself and saying, we're a smart c
